Tonight is a really quick post with the card I made for the PPA Challenge no 141. One of my best friends back in Australia, Shiami, asked me to make her some cards for various occasions. The baby ones I knew what I wanted to do, but the mum one was a little bit of a challenge. Not sure why, as for this Mum's card I previously made for my mum and mother in law I knew exactly what I wanted to make. But I knew I wanted to start with the same stamp set, as I really liked how the embossing letters worked on that card. I know, I know, the spelling is wrong, but what can I do? The stamp is for the US market :-).
Here is the card (entry 77 at PPA):
And a few different angles:
Close-up to get an idea of the 3D effect. Both the letters and the background watercolored flower part are mounted with stamping dimensionals.
The sketch from PPA Challenge 141 that I used for inspiration:
I really hope you like it Shiami! And most of all hope mum will like it :-). (ps. Hope she doesn't visit my blog :-))). )

Hope you like tonights card. I need to go and get some beauty sleep, I am not at all accustomed to this waking up every morning early and doing the school run. I mean I'm used to the waking up part, not the I need to be dressed and out the door at 7.45 am part....
